Queensowntalia: I will guess that he was driving with a suspended license or something similarly minor.
INeedAName: Can we assume he was white?
Smidge204: Not so minor that handcuffs and a helicopter chase were unjustified, I guess...
mrsirjojo: "Area" man? Who uses this for Internet headlines in 2014?
Feepit: As this took place in Texas, perhaps he ran because he feared the trooper would imagine him clenching his buttcheeks and order unnecessary medical procedures in an effort to find the drugs. I mean, if you thought you might be anally violated, wouldn't you run across a busy highway to avoid getting raped?
strangeluck: Wasn't there a story where a guy who wasn't actually guilty of anything ran away while handcuffed, and they ended up charging him with theft of the handcuffs?I'm surprised they didn't send three SWAT teams after this guy for felony theft of police equipment, and that's pretty pathetic they couldn't find a handcuffed suspect. I mean, it's good they didn't shoot him while he was running away, but a Taser has a pretty good reach, did the cop not even try to zap him?Police Commander: He got away? Ah, well, screw it then. File a report and go back to work.
